Nagayu Hot Springs
Nagayu is listed as one of the hundred best hot springs in Japan. On top of that, the hot spring in the area is carbonated so that fine bubbles may be formed on your skin when bathing long enough at a lower temperature. Carbonated hot spring helps improve your blood circulation without raising blood pressure. The hot spring is also well known for drinking as it is good for health. Serikawa river runs through the central area of Nagayu, dotted with Ryokans (Japanese inns). Some Ryokans and bathing facilities admit bathing-only visitors at a reasonable price.
